Queen Maxima dons VERY glamorous look as she shows off her culinary skills during Vienna trip
Queen Máxima of the Netherlands has once again ensured that all eyes are on her by donning an exuberant gray lace outfit during a performance in Vienna today.
The 51-year-old Dutch royal is currently on a three-day state visit to Austria with her husband King Willem-Alexander, 55.
Today they met Ukrainian refugees while visiting a community cooking project in Brotfabrik, a former bread factory that has been transformed into a social enterprise with art exhibitions and other cultural and educational initiatives.
Then they walked through Vienna, before going to the Spanish riding school, where they had their picture taken with one of the horses.
During the trip, Máxima wore a very glamorous gray ensemble, matching a one-shoulder dress with an elegant hat in matching fabric.

Although she loved to cook, at times the Queen seemed less than sure about how the dish was going
Attached to her dress was a large brooch with a pale blue gemstone to match her dangling earrings. Her other pieces include sparkling diamond bracelets and silver rings.
The mum of three completed the glamorous look with a polished makeup look, pairing her dewy base with a smoky gray eye and a hint of black mascara. To keep the focus on her eye makeup, she opted for a natural pink lip and a soft peach blush.
Meanwhile, her blonde locks had been styled in a side part and then pulled into a low bun, which tucked neatly under her gray lace hat.
In a sensible move, the royal donned a black apron, protecting her elegant dress as she showed off some cooking.
